Chart your own course at Black Pine Retreat!

Offering old growth forests and a flowing creek, our secluded sites are sure to live up to even the most "wild" of camping dreams!

Giant ferns adorn the primitive wilderness as you take a short walk to the Main Site. Quickly the sounds of the world fade away and your dreams unfold in front of your eyes.

Pick the spot that suits your fancy: do you prefer a more open environment or a quiet grotto tucked under the trees?

The rest is up to your imagination!

Will you spend your time swimming in the numerous lakes and ponds around our Homestead? Will you explore the scenic trails and commune with nature atop an oak-lined hilltop? Or will you visit the quaint local towns that are equidistant from our location? Maybe renting a side-by-side or a boat and feeling the wind on your face is more your style?

It's all possible at Black Pine Retreat!

Camping at Black Pine was an incredible experience. Mike and his wife were very knowledgeable about the area, both the camping area(s) as well as other things to do.

Beautiful scenery. Great for hiking, walking the dog, or just relaxing.

10/10. Will definitely put it on my schedule for next trip!

Such a beautiful piece of land that makes you feel like your in the middle of nowhere but is literally right next to very good restaurants and a gas station and so many lakes and streams with exceptional fishing! Mike and his wife are great people and have so much knowledge about the area so it makes it that much more enjoyable when your not familiar with what is available! Definitely cant wait to come back!
